Months after releasing the original Amazfit Verge smartwatch in India for Rs 11,999, Huami has announced the Amazfit Verge Lite in China. The smartwatch comes with similar features from the Verge but with a longer lasting battery and GPS+GLONASS support. The Amazfit Verge Lite smartwatch will be available for a price of 499 Yuan (approx. Rs 5,000).
The Verge Lite features a 1.3-inch 43mm circular AMOLED display with a resolution of 360×360 pixels and Gorilla Glass 3 protection, similar to that of the original Verge watch. Huami claims that an added coating on the watch prevents fingerprint smudges from accumulating on the screen when being used.
Weighing at 46 grams, the Amazfit Verge Lite comes with real-time motion tracking, heart rate monitoring and offline payment support. Users will be able to record their heart rates continuously at regular intervals throughout the day and also track sleep data and sleep quality. There’s also a built-in sedentary reminder.
The smartwatch comes with a total of 7 different sports modes including football, golf, running, cycling, hiking, gym and boating. The Verge Lite also packs a bunch of sensors that include an accelerometer, gyroscope, ambient light sensor and a PPG sensor for cardiac health.
Connectivity options include Bluetooth 4.2 BLE, GPS and GLONASS. Unlike the original Verge watch, the Lite edition doesn’t offer NFC support or a mic and speaker combo. The watch, however, comes with a 20-day battery in contrast to the original watch’s 5-day battery and Huami says the watch will also be able to deliver continuous GPS usage for 40 hours.
The Amazfit Verge Lite smartwatch will be available in Snow Mountain White and Cool Shark Black colours for a price of 499 Yuan (approx. Rs 5,000).
